Clearing your browser cache for Cradlepoint Routers

The Problem: Cradlepoint's new NetBSD routers will cache an image of the existing image of the admin interface in a web browser. This is persistent and after preforming a firmware upgrade any new settings won't be viewable (if features are added or moved). This is because the web browser has cached an image of the previous firmware and the placement may be different on a newer revision.

The Solution: In order to ensure your not viewing a cached image you must clear your cache after upgrading firmware or changing different router models (IE - going from MBR95 to MBR1400 for instance).
